Aldar reveals construction updates for eight projects in Abu Dhabi
Progress made on Alreeman, Reflection, Mamsha Al Saadiyat, Yas Acres, Water's Edge, Bridges, Alghadeer, and Mayan
Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange-listed real estate developer Aldar Properties has revealed construction updates of its Alreeman, Reflection, Mamsha Al Saadiyat, Yas Acres, Water's Edge, Bridges, Alghadeer, and Mayan projects, with contracts worth $272.3m (AED1bn) awarded by the developer for Alreeman – a master planned mixed-use development in Al Shamkha – and Reflection – a twin-tower scheme located on the emirate’s Reem Island.
Construction work on the $544m (AED2bn) Alreeman project, which covers an area of 2.8km2, kicked off in January 2019.
Aldar has appointed Tristar Engineering & Construction as the main contractor for the project under a $216.2m (AED794m) deal, with the project expected to be handed over by July 2021.
Scope of works for the project includes the construction of roads and infrastructure, in addition to earthworks, and a drainage and sewage network.
Tristar will also work on the installation of gas, water, irrigation, and telecom systems, in addition to street lighting and landscaping.
In April 2019, Aldar had picked Abu Dhabi-based Fibrex Construction Group as the main contractor for Reflection under a $59.9m (AED220m) contract, with construction work slated to be completed in a period of 24 months.
Pile head cutting is under way on the two-towered project featuring 374 units. Excavation, piling and shoring, and pile load testing work have been completed for the development.
Aldar has also noted progress on projects including Yas Acres, Water’s Edge, Mayan, Mamsha Al Saadiyat, Jawaher Saadiyat, Bridges, and Alghadeer, construction work on which is at various stages of development.
At Yas Acres, a golf and waterfront villa and townhouse development, structural work has been completed for its 652 homes, with work steadily progressing on golf course earthworks, roads, and hardscape.
Structural works are also progressing on all 13 buildings of Water’s Edge, with floor slabs being cast at various levels and blockwork making steady progress.
Concrete works are complete across the Mayan project, with completion on blockwork imminent. Plasterworks, floor and wall tiling, and ceiling works are being implemented for its buildings.
Construction work on Mamsha Al Saadiyat, located on Abu Dhabi’s Saadiyat Island, has noted significant completion, with finishing works under way and work on the conveying system entering final stages of installation.
At Jawaher Saadiyat, joinery and other interior fixtures and fittings works have entered the final stage, as Aldar looks to hand over the project later this year.
Concrete works on the three-building Phase 1 of Aldar’s six-building 1,272-unit Bridges were completed in February 2019, and the buildings are moving closer to the finalisation of finishing works.
Superstructure works on Buildings 4, 5, and 6 in Phase 2 of Bridges are nearing completion.
Excavation works on Alghadeer have been completed, with foundation, waterproofing, and binding works on the 14,000-home project progressing well.
